Toll House details
Toll House is a romantic and unique holiday home. A listed former toll house, it is small yet enchanting, dating back to the 18th century.
The property is on the quiet high street in the very friendly and attractive Somerset village of Nether Stowey which lies at the foot of the Quantock Hills, England’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village is well supplied with 3 pubs, a post office, tea shop and grocery store. It is an ideal location for an outdoor break as the area is exceptional for walking, riding and the unspoilt countryside.
The village’s poetic history is well documented, being a former home of Samuel Taylor Coleridge where he wrote the famous Kubla Kahn and The Rime of The Ancient Marina. William Wordsworth also lived just three miles away.
